Bring Daylight Indoors with Human-Centric Lighting

Our lifestyles have transformed immensely since the time of our ancestors, and lighting has played a significant role. From nights spent around a fire to oil lamps and electricity, lighting has shaped our evolution. Unfortunately, while today's lighting offers tremendous benefits, none the least of which is a 24/7 lifestyle, it's also taken its toll. 

We no longer spend our days outside and retire when darkness falls. Our bodies still produce certain hormones that energize us in the daylight and others that promote sleep when the natural light grows dim. Unfortunately, these promptings are rare because most of us spend over 90% of our time indoors. And that's where the problems begin.

Today, there is a solution, and it's called circadian lighting. Let's explore what this technology offers homeowners in Dallas, TX, and how it enhances your well-being.

What Is Your Circadian Rhythm?

Circadian lighting refers to your circadian rhythm, your body's 24-hour internal time clock that regulates sleep and alert cycles by responding to changing light. The sleep-wake cycle influences almost all of your essential functions, from body temperature to blood pressure, digestion, eating habits, and the release of hormones. 

When sunlight enters your eyes, it stimulates the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter associated with happiness, positive attitudes, and enhanced moods. Darkness prompts your body to make melatonin, a hormone that promotes restful sleep. 

Disruptions in this sleep-wake cycle can have detrimental effects on your overall health, from extreme fatigue to insomnia. 

What Is Circadian Lighting?

Circadian lighting is an automated system that gradually transforms your home's lighting throughout the day. It reflects the color and intensity of daylight, bringing this natural light indoors. In response, your body's circadian rhythm realigns, promoting energy during the day and relaxation in the evening. The result is improved sleep, better moods, increased energy, enhanced concentration, and overall well-being.

The lighting shifts across a dynamic, almost infinite spectrum of color temperatures. Your day starts with the soft blue glow of dawn before shifting to the bright shine of sunrise. By midday, the lighting takes on a cool blue color, promoting wakefulness and productivity and improving moods. As the day winds down, a warm, cozy amber glow tells your body it's time to relax and prepare for sleep.
